Thanks to the visitor center staff I was able to visit the wineries for the day I missed and then went on their tour the next day. Loved being chauffeured and able to enjoy more wine. Lunch was included and the restaurant handled my allergies wonderfully with other options.

Lots of privately owned wineries from Malibu to Ojai. Most open on weekends only. Every one of them are passionate about the wines they make, AND the wines are good too.

After doing two big long days of Holiday shopping at the Camarillo Outlets, Santa Barbara, and the cute historic downtown Ventura Beach, we were ready for some pure fun. We took this wine... More
